An insider’s guide to Easter Weekend 2017 in Windsor

Easter Weekend 2017 is right around the corner and as children are getting excited about the annual visit from the Easter bunny (and all the chocolate that comes along with it!), us grownups are much more delighted to welcome the first bank holiday weekend of the year. We know how precious those long weekends are, and how important it is to feel like you’ve made the most of your four full days out of the office. We’ve come up with some of the best ways to spend Easter Weekend 2017 in Windsor. With everything from Easter Egg hunts for the little ones, to stunning strolls along the River Thames, there really is something for everyone to enjoy.

Carnival of Colour – Rainbow Trail in The Savill Garden

Set in Windsor Great Park, The Savill Garden is 35 acres of interconnected gardens that have been beautifully designed for everyone to enjoy. This Easter the garden will host a Carnival of Colour, with beautiful blooms bursting into life through the vibrant rainbow trail. To keep the kids entertained, there will be free colourful craft activities, including egg painting in The Savill Building.

Walk the Thames Path this Easter Weekend

If we are lucky enough to see some sunshine this Easter weekend then walking the Thames Path is a great way to get out and about, put down the chocolate, and get off the sofa. This walk heads away from Windsor and out to open fields alongside Windsor Racecourse and the Thames, following the open countryside through Bray, Maidenhead, Cookham and Bourne End. You will see some beautiful countryside and river views along this route, which is part of a National Trail footpath running for 180 miles along the River Thames.

Runnymede Cadbury Egg Hunt

The National Trust has teamed up with Cadbury to offer a great day out for your little ones this Easter. Let them frolic in the Runnymede meadows as they follow hidden clues and hints to win a delicious Easter egg treat. The event is open from 10.30am on Friday 14th April until Monday 17th April, and it is free to enter the park, however there is a £3 fee to enter the Egg Hunt.

Visit Windsor Castle

Pay a visit to the world’s oldest and largest inhabited castle. It has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1000 years, and is still an official residence of Her Majesty The Queen. The castle is closed on Good Friday, and opens at 1pm on Easter Sunday. For the last couple of years The Queen has attended the Easter Sunday service at St George’s Chapel, so if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of Her Majesty!

Easter Sunday Lunch on the River Thames

We are pleased to announce the opening of the brand new Brasserie at Sir Christopher Wren. The newly refurbished space features large windows and sky lights, flooding the area with daylight and offering spectacular views of the Thames. This Easter Sunday, we are serving up a delicious seasonal lunch, accompanied by live jazz music and an Easter Egg surprise for every child. For only £34.50 per adult, £16.95 per child, and children under 4 eating for free it is sure to be a sell out event so book your table today to avoid disappointment.
